Last Minute CAT 2021 Preparation Tips 

 Well, most of the preparation has to be completed by now and the last week should be reserved only for revision. Touching new topics or still studying is not a great idea for the last week. 

Here are some of the major preparation tips for the last week before the CAT 2021 exams. 

  1. Stick to revision only. Make sure to keep your last week saved for as much revision as possible. Just re-reading old things that you have already prepared for will help you remember them better. Revising the basics like the rules of grammar and quantitive formulas will be the best. 
  2. Try to sort out the formulas in a way that you will easily remember. If you keep doing the lengthy formulas, you might waste a lot of time. So, try to break down the formulas into quicker ways to remember. 
  3. Get the last week/last minute study materials ready with you beforehand. If you have been going to a coaching they must have provided you with lots of study materials. But, in the last week, you only need the cheat sheets or the mock papers. These will help you solve the existing questions and increase your paper solving capacity. So, all you have to do is ditch the heavy detailed materials in the last week and stick to the cheat sheet materials. 
  4. If you are facing some issues in any specific part, you must focus on that. You can consult the coaching you have enrolled in and ask the professors to help you with those problems. However, if you are still not able to solve them, we would recommend you to leave it and forget it. Focus on what you know. That would be enough. 
  5. Create fake or mock exams for yourself for the entire week. Try to solve as many mock papers and previous years papers during this exam. The idea is not only to solve the questions but to manage the time, prepare for a strategy, get familiar to the format, watch out your weaker zones, check your speed and accuracy on each section, and more. 
  6. Make sure you are getting enough rest and productive breaks in the last week. Do not get enough worked up where your brain gets stagnant. Eat proper meal, sleep well, have good distractions, and take it easy. 
  7. Last is to stay calm on the day of exam. Affirm that you know it all and you have done your best in the preparations. 

We wish you all the best for your CAT 2021 exams. Just believe that you can do it. You have it all.
